Coming home to a quiet, dark house.
Meals by myself, because she was already done.
Excuses and apologies, they were never enough.
But even with that, when I touched her—when she arched under me and pulled me deeper— we couldn’t get back to where we needed to be.
Where we used to be.
It was all frustration.
Loneliness.
Loss.

Because even though she was no longer my student, the chemistry was always there.
Adele and I loved each other.
We thought we were unshakeable.

But love isn’t always enough.

It wasn’t enough when I constantly disappointed her.
It wasn’t enough when loss cleaved us in two.
And when she left me, love was not enough.

She didn’t know yet that I’d never stop fighting for her.
But she would.

**Author’s note- Let’s be real clear that this is BOOK TWO of a duet, and you’re going to want to read Tempting before you read this one. Adele and Nathan started their story in that book, and you’ll get the same sex, fighting, and cursing that you did in the first. But if you want it to make sense, read Tempting first. If any of that offends you, please avoid them both.**

my thoughtsDamn…just damn! Amazing work, yet again. I FLOVE this sexy, intense, and seductive series!

“Some people need air and food to survive. Not us, Adele. We need this. We need each other, just like this.”

Adele and Nathan are back, and their relationship is as intense as ever. No longer forbidden, but no less naughty as hell, PROVOCATIVE still pushed all the right buttons. There is no question about their loyalty or the love that they share, but that doesn’t automatically grant them a happily ever after.

I was late to game reading TEMPTING, where Nathan and Adele’s story began. Needless to say, it fucking ROCKED and I loved it to death! I had no clue that their story wasn’t over yet. After all, I really liked how it ended. It felt whole…complete. So when I read the blurb for PROVOCATIVE I got a little scared. I’ve come across some romances in the past, where the author tried to push another happily ever after into a second book with the same couple, and it didn’t work well at all. They were better off leaving those characters be. I’m happy to say that Alex Lucian executed this second book VERY well! More passion, more angst, more mind-blowing chemistry with every turn of the page, made PROVOCATIVE a sexy and invigorating page-turner for sure!

The growth of these characters together, and separately was amazing to witness. Time apart gave them pause to re-evaluate where they were and how they want to end up. They are no longer in a forbidden place, but their past, and how they met still holds them back from truly being happy.

PROVOCATIVE was just that, a provocative, intensely passionate, and overwhelmingly emotional erotic romance that had me laughing, crying, and grinning from ear to ear. Their love is fierce…their love is true…their love is PROVOCATIVE. Every romance reader should take a chance on this author. Trust me on this. Don’t wait…dive into the TEMPTING series today!
